Too busy to refill customers Beverages. Coffee, Tea. Only get water if you ask for it. This says it all. Lousy Service.

We arrived and were sat promptly. Our server arrived and was able to take our order at a quick pace. Good came out nice and warm. Kids loved their meals and we never had half full drinks. Jonathan did a great job!

Food is ok, In spite the waitstaff are kind, they are far too slow. You may/may not see them again so be sure you have everything you need before they leave the table after setting down your plate. Perhaps there just isn't enough staff?

Can't ever go wrong with this place. The food is good. Whether you have breakfast, lunch or dinner you won't be disappointed. The biscuits and cornbread are very very good, too. Having said how good the food is we must now go to their store. Really fun stuff to look through. Don't be in a hurry. The only drawback is... More

The food and service were excellent, but the excessive merchandising on the way in and out was unwelcome. Trying to corral a family small children to the table was a pain, especially as we had to wait to be seated. If I come back, it won't be with the family group.

I really like the down home food offerings at Cracker Barrel. They serve breakfast all day have many delicious entrees and sides and they have a really fun shopping area. You can find so many incredible fashions and gift ideas. Lots of old fashioned type candy and toys. It's worth a trip there or if you're on a trip it's... More

I will never go back to Cracker Barrel. I was at this location on 11/25/15 for 30 minutes waiting to pick up 2 pies and some rolls. I was asked 4 times my name and what my order was. After 30 minutes I gave up and walked out. No one even attempted to apologize. Place was absolute chaos. Later in... More

This is pretty much run of the mill. Food was ok but they didn't seem to keep their selections available. Meat Loaf would be ready in an hour, Corn bread not ready yet.

Went with some friends for a quick meal. It was a Tuesday night, they were not very busy. I thought we would have better service. However, our waitress was slow to refill our glasses. We asked for sour dough bread, and she brought us wheat bread. My rainbow trout was overcooked.
